  • Parent Company: Petrobangla
  • Current Capacity:
  • Proposed Capacity: 800 million cubic feet per day[3]
  • Length: 112 mi / 181 km
  • Status: Construction
  • Start Year: 2020

Background

The Chittagong-Feni-Bakhrabad gas transmission pipeline will be operated by GTCL, a subsidiary of Petrobangla.[1] The pipeline will supply surplus imported re-gasified liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Fouzdarhat to the national gas grid to meet the overall gas demand of the country after meeting the demand of Chittagong (Chattogram) areas.[4]

Project delays

Initially, the project's implementation period was scheduled for July 2016 to June 2019, however, due to a delay in acquiring lands in the Sitakunda area, the pipeline's construction was delayed.[5][3] In September 2019, GTCL reported that construction was 75% complete and that the new planned commissioning date was December 2020.[4]
